Wow, what a difference from last year.  We had a ton of antenna and station 
improvements from last years WW SSB.  Antenna improvements (additions) include 
a 4/4 on 40M, 4-square on 80M, tower 4-square on 160M, 4 beverages, fixed SE 
monobanders on 10-20, and a single rotatable yagi on 10-40.  Inside 
improvements are the homebrew switches to allow quick switching of all those 
antennas, including driving several at once to allow CQing in multiple 
directions.  To get a better station description and pictures, please visit our 
website at http://www.k4ja.com

We would probably have done better if the yagis actually pointed where we 
thought they did.  After noticing some funny stuff going on, WE9V and I checked 
antenna directions.  Some stacks were off by as much as 90 degrees in some 
directions.  No wonder why we had a rough time busting some of the piles!  
Unfortunately, we found this out at 23z Sunday, one hour before the end of the 

Overall, conditions were probably among the best I have ever seen.  Low bands 
are sure different than back in Wisconsin.  We all can't wait for the CW test!  
Thanks goes out to the operators and all of the QSOs!
